My goodness did the mood in this forum change QUICKLY!
Yes we got our ass kicked today… Goff wasn’t sharp, our defense was god awful in every single way, and the coaches were a disaster!!!
So what? I told everyone this team wasn’t “there yet” and didn’t have the muscle in the trenches to be the “BULLY” every week-
Hobbled Decker, Big V and missing Jonah isn’t a recipe for winning the street fight. Monty being out is a recipe for a finesse and trick play strategy…. Not simply swap out physical guys for less physical guys and try to bully anyway???
Branch isn’t Ed Reed, he’s a rookie…. Campbell isn’t Fred Warner, he’s a struggling rookie…. Trying to get pressure from guys like Romeo and a banged up Paschal isn’t going to work against prepared teams.
- that said we are 5-2 and could have a 3 game lead on the division. We should go at worst 3-2 in our division games…. That is 8-4-
- I think we go 3-2 here as well.
If 11-6 and a division win isn’t good enough, then yall set yourselves up for disappointment. I was at 11-6 or 10-7 preseason, and we suffered more injuries than one could have predicted- so beating Baker, Ridder, Love, and Bryce Young didn’t change that….
- Jamo can’t catch
- our OL is good but not unbelievable
- our pass rush is a one man show
- our secondary is too beat up
I hope we we see a 27-17 game vs Vegas and a clean game by Goff- maybe some consistency from Jamo-
- that’s a group that is tough to compete with talent wise right now.
- this is about where we are, and where most would have hoped to be when season started.
Back away from the league… we need a CB, OL, WR, DE- high level one that is… hopefully one via trade, one in FA next year, and 2 in draft for SB run in 2024!
